Frome Town vs Bristol Manor Farm – 28/03/23, 7.45pm KO.
It goes without saying that Tuesday’s match at Badgers Hill is an extremely poignant one for both clubs, with Frome having one eye on each the relegation zone & play-offs, whereas the mission for Manor Farm is simple: survival. Jack Davies returns to preview all of the action with his latest preview.
Manor Farm travel to Frome for the first time since their famous play off semi-final win last year. The two sides came 2nd and 5th respectively to make those play-offs but have both failed to get anywhere near repeating the feat this time around. Farm are in a real relegation battle and need points wherever they can get if they’re to stay in the division. Frome are just about clear of danger but are firmly in the bottom half and will be hoping to end their season in a more positive frame. Farm will be hopeful of a return for captain Jake Gosling, having welcomed back midfield partner Frankie Artus from suspension and injury recently.
